Subject: Bill Graham's Intro: Re: Rex Foundation
Jerry's homeroom over the top in every song. The entire band is resplendent in their relaxed
self-portraits of Modernism. There is a remarkable sense of comfort paint residing twixt personnel and palate and the result, 'tis shows masterpiece. All instruments are clearly heard in this amazing Kirschner/Miller Do. Even songs like Mexicali shine! Jerry Garcia dips into his book of styles and wrenches out a few, proverbially...heh heh... Then he just goes whack on RR Blues.
Oh, drizzling slack-key dewdrop resonance turned to bubbling over, all over the range.
A lotta deadheads don't like Don't Ease Me In, but this version persuades its inherit merit with interest.
Now, dig, okay? Just sit back and take it in. Frankly, this audience recording is better than a soundboard because this recording is more cleanly representative of the overall show.
Kirshner's setup (ala Rango Keshavan's AUD's of the era) truly depicts the golden age of tapers. And mind you, These are analog recordings. Incredible, I say, incredible, yet again -- expressing the very gist of "the sound."
After a heavenly Help>Slip>Frank the counterpoint with jerry full out flailing and bobby's cruel slide chords on Samson is so gut wrenching it yanks one out of his seat and twists into the air. Another prime example of the Grateful Dead levitating whole audiences out of seat and no one trying.
Perfect rendition = Terrapin. French dressing on the side. And all the rest is pudding. After that, it's downhill slalom. Hot smoking guitars.
Jerry and Bobby out and out cutting heads --
One of the great great great shows.
A full 40 out of 5 stars rating.
